Adafruit national week of making blog

Tomorrow is the first day of the 2016 National Week of Making! Here at Adafruit, we’re excited to be a part of this year’s celebration. Be sure to tune in to the blog where we will be posting about Makers in the U.S. every day for the next week. Don’t forget to join in and share your favorite Maker on social media with #NationOfMakers #WeekofMaking.

Not sure what the National Week of Making entails? Here’s some more info from weekofmaking.org:

“Makers and builders and doers — of all ages and backgrounds — have pushed our country forward, developing creative solutions to important challenges and proving that ordinary Americans are capable of achieving the extraordinary when they have access to the resources they need.”

President Obama, National Week of Making Proclamation

Building on last year’s National Week of Making, this year’s Week will highlight the diversity of Makers big and small, young and old, urban and rural. The Week of Making is an opportunity to for individuals in communities throughout the U.S. to participate in Making activities locally, celebrating the innovation, ingenuity and creativity of Makers.
